    Yes that't them. Whoever made the bars did a fixed version but they moulded the stainless steel hook through the plastic and that created a weak spot, I broke a few. But the sliding ones are surprisingly strong with no welds to fail and with only the elastic failing over time and you can replace that .

    As a heavyweight I used a roller hook for years until it broke, which I guess is the same concept. During the last two years or so I have shifted the harness lines closer and closer together until now they touch for all except my 9.0. Of necessity I have moved to a normal hook and its fine with the touching harness lines.

    Yes thats the type Duncan A.

    The roller hook works in a very different way richarli, there is very little movement on the lines as the unequal length of line creates a pull back the other way.
    The hook on a sliding bar stays in the centre of the line and retains centre balance, all the movement is shifted body weight.

    Got them both for 32 English pounds.
    The fanatic one seems to be almost new (but old).
    The Mistral is a bit flimsy but the bar hook and elastic are fine for spares.
